    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Douglas College (Coquitlam, BC (Canada)) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a panel of three. I was asked to present on how I would approach a particular project they were working (eg. business development). the rest of the interview process consisted of standard interview questions.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions were standard. The scenario I had to present on was up for interpretation and vague.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None
